Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
1 Strong's Number: g4198 Greek: poreuomai

Go (Went), Go Onward, Etc.:

"to go on one's way, to proceed from one place to another" (from poros, "a passage, a ford," Eng., "pore"), is always used in the Middle Voice in the NT and the Sept., and is the most frequent verb signifying "to go;" it is more distinctly used to indicate procedure or course than the verb eimi, "to go" (not found in the NT). It is often rendered "go thy (your) way," in Oriental usage the customary dismissal, marking the close of a case in court. Hence, in ordinary parlance, marking the end of a conversation, etc., e.g., Luk 7:22; 17:19; Jhn 4:50; Act 9:15; 24:25; cp. Dan 12:9; in Rom 15:24 (1st part), RV, "go" (AV, "take my journey"); in Act 9:3; 26:13, "journeyed" (AV and RV).

denotes "to go past, to pass by" (para, "by," and No. 1), Mar 2:23, AV, "went (through)," RV, "was going (through);" some mss. have No. 4 here.
